So I am specific, because we do lean towards our fair share of gay romance on our blog, Call to Arms: Modern LGBTQ+ Fiction of the Second World War is queer fiction, not MM. A couple of characters return for a sequel here but I only know that because I just happened to remember them, it was nice to see they're still happy, the rest were all new characters. There are some standout stories but across the board each short is strong and they span several countries, years, and letters within the rainbow alphabet. I would have loved more length with most of these stories but only because they're so good. I was more than happy with most of these as they stood, although I wouldn't complain if some found their way into longer novellas or novels.
I really do love a good short story. If you can tell me a heartfelt tale in a limited word count I am in total awe, and that mission was well and truly accomplished here. I also want to give mention to Heloise Mezen for meticulously compiling the anthology. I can't recommend Call to Arms highly enough. 5 Stars!
